It's always easier to grasp your ideas when you spell things right! both in asking questions and answering them. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

How do you go about finding these trees? Are the landowners generally OK with you entering their property to cut and haul out the logs? Or do you own suffficient forrested land that you are able to get all you need off your own land?

It seems that using dead trees would help with the drying time on the lumber. It might limit you on the sizes.
